CONSIDERING TO FILM IN GEORGIA COUNTRY?

If you are interested in how to film your next project in Georgia, and it is Georgia Country not Georgia US State, then let us help you with your decision.

There are three basic reasons why you really need to consider shooting your film in Georgia.

  1. Georgia is a very compact and at the same time very diverse country.  And by diverse I mean locations.  There are 23 climate/sub-climate zones in this small country, so on the same day you can be shooting in one of the worlds most iconic Caucasus mountain range, and then on a desert, or in subtropics and at the seashore.   At the same time Georgia is an ancient country with ancient locations, as well as recent history of Soviet might be exactly what you look for, or do you care for European city streets, it is all here.  On our sister site, you can scan through many of locations that we have prepared as a very convenient catalogue.  
  2. Georgia is a very cost effective place to shoot.  Not only crews and other direct production costs are much cheaper than other eastern european countries, but also cost of goods and cost of living is low as well.  So you can save your production budget, or increase the production value of your picture.  
  3. And now from 2016, CASH REBATE was introduced in Georgia.  So now you can take back 25% of the money you spend in Georgia on your next film.  If you want to find out how tax rebate in Georgia works, click here.
